Liberals & Democrats
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal host Bill Maher and actor Jim Carrey celebrated recent Democratic candidates running on far-left platforms and identifying themselves as "socialists," leading Carrey to proclaim: "We have to say yes to socialism -- to the word and everything. We have to stop apologizing."
In awe over former President Obama delivering partisan attacks against the Trump administration and Republicans in a Friday campaign speech ahead of the midterm elections, MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin gushed: “For the past hour or so, it has been a flashback to a different time in this country. President Barack Obama – classic Obama.”
While the immediate reaction on CNN’s Wolf Friday afternoon to former President Barack Obama’s angry, bitter speech against President Trump was more timid than expected in avoiding an Obama lovefest, CNN Newsroom afternoon host Brooke Baldwin and her experts came through in reminding us that this is a network of The Resistance.
The cable network Freeform has announced that it is putting together a Party of Five reboot. For fans of the 90s classic, this sounds like good news, though they should know that it’s not quite the show they grew up with. Freeform’s twist on this all-American family is that it’s being replaced by a Mexican immigrant family whose parents have been deported.
Fans of Chelsea Handler and Michelle Wolf should rejoice. While Netflix had the good sense to cancel those shows, Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman has somehow returned despite a horrible, terrible, no-good, very bad first season. For a show that claims to “love” America, it sure hates a good part of it.
Sure, go ahead and argue CNN interviews with elected officials have been dominated by Democrats because they say yes. But upon closer review, however, one will see examples of why Republicans skip out on this home for Resistance viewpoints. New York Republican Congressman Tom Reed’s appearance on CNN’s Wolf Thursday afternoon is perhaps the newest.
Thursday night marks the premiere of Michael Moore’s new conspiracy-peddling, anti-Trump documentary, Fahrenheit 11/9. Hours before his big debut, Moore took to Twitter to wrap up all the lefty news narratives into one lame-brain conspiracy theory centered on “evil genius” President Donald Trump.
Reacting on Wednesday’s Hardball to the anonymous Trump official’s self-serving New York Times op-ed, MSNBC host Chris Matthews compared it to the same clarion call offered by George Kennan in 1946 on containing communism while panelists Steve Schmidt seemingly read from a thesaurus to attack the Trump administration and Zerlina Maxwell urged the need for impeachment proceedings.
On Wednesday, MRC’s Dan Gainor appeared alongside tech expert Lance Ulanoff on Fox Business’ After the Bell to discuss Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s testimony before Congress. At the hearing the Dorsey denied any allegations that there was censorship of conservatives, however Gainor insisted that this was contrary to the evidence.
During Wednesday’s Senate hearing concerning foreign influence on social media platforms, Twitter founder and CEO Jack Dorsey stated that his goal in combating the proliferation of fake or misleading accounts was to amplify the voices of active journalists on the site. That’s nice, but since Dorsey has admitted his company is “left-leaning,” we’re left to wonder which journalists he wants to promote.
Wednesday on The View, the hosts gave a warm welcome to former Secretary of State under President Obama, John Kerry, giving him the chance to promote his new memoir, while lobbing softballs about the Mueller probe, the Iran Deal and his relationship with John McCain.
Swept up in the excitement of Democrats and left-wing protesters constantly disrupting the first day of Senate hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, on Wednesday, all three network morning shows read from the same script as reporters declared: “Chaos on Capitol Hill.” The hostility was touted as a “coordinated strategy” engineered by “passionate” liberal lawmakers opposed to Kavanaugh.
